During the last months of freezing temperatures, when the mountains are still sheathed in white, my mind wanders about imagining the upcoming summer with its excursions deep into the same mountains free of snow, accessible along dry trails, and cut by clear waters full of hungry trout. Well, summer is here and it has been another one full of adventures and wanderings - Utah, Wyoming, Idaho, Oregon, Washington, and Alaska.
The season is fleeting and the focus is on fun, family, and friends...and a Sprinter van conversion, but that's a story for another day. This summer I scaled back the amount of video I shot and have been working on taking better photos. Whether that happens, I don't know, but in the meantime, this summer has been a fun one.
Now it's time to get in one or two more backpacking trips, start dreaming of winter, and finish editing the various projects that need to be done before the start of the 2016-17 ski season!
